Replace Old Wiring

If you live in an older home and you haven’t updated the wiring in decades, ensure you call in a professional electrician to rewire your house. Outdated wiring could pose a wide range of hazards, including electrical fires, power surges, and electrical shock. Old wiring also comes with risks like overloaded electrical circuits. It’s a good idea to update your wiring and save yourself the headache of dealing with repeated electrical problems such as tripping circuit breakers and flickering lights. Rewiring your home ensures your electrical system is safe, increases your home’s electrical capacity, improves your property’s value, and may lower your home insurance premiums.

Switch to LEDs

If you’re still using fluorescent or incandescent lighting in your home or business, now is the time to upgrade to LED lighting. LED light fixtures are more energy-efficient compared to incandescent or fluorescent fixtures. In addition, LED light fixtures last several times longer and do not emit harmful UV radiation, so they are environmentally friendly. By installing LED light fixtures in your home or business, you’ll not only save money on your energy bills, but you’ll also be helping the environment, as these fixtures don’t contain toxic materials.

Electrical Panel Updates

Modern households use about 30%- 50% more energy than in the past because we rely so heavily on electrical appliances. Therefore, it’s important to upgrade your electrical panel to keep up with the increased demand. If you’re considering making electrical upgrades this year, it would be best to factor in electrical panel upgrades. Upgrading your electrical panel will ensures your property can meet its power needs, improve electrical safety, and potentially lower your home insurance premiums.

Signs You Need To Upgrade Your Electrical Panel

  • Circuit breakers trip frequently
  • You recently added a new large appliance, such as a dishwasher or a large freezer
  • Loud and unusual sounds from the electrical panel
  • Rust has formed on the electrical panel
  • Melted wires and scorch marks on the electrical panel
  • Your electrical panel is more than 25 years old

Do not wait until you’re having problems with your electrical system to schedule an electrical panel upgrade. Call an experienced electrician as soon as possible to assess the need for a new electrical panel and advise you accordingly.

Get a Backup Generator

If you live in an area that’s prone to power outages, it’s a good idea to invest in a backup generator. This is a great idea, especially for people who work from home and for households with vulnerable members, such as elderly adults, small children, and sick family members.

If you’re planning to make electrical upgrades in your home or business and looking for a dependable electrician to get the job done, call Mr. Electric to help you.
